NWAC holds a vision for program and policy that reflects the needs of Aboriginal women and families. This vision includes opportunities for women in the labour market, including opportunities for training and employment to allow for Aboriginal women to secure full-time, well-paying jobs, as well as benefits to support the needs of both individuals and families.
Through programming and policy NWAC’s Labour Market Development department strives to improve the lives and well-being of Aboriginal women and girls. NWAC works with public and private industry on recruitment and retention of Aboriginal women and girls. Priority is placed on meaningful partnership development and projects that engage in skills development and training.
